The goal of this WebQuest is to serve as the beginning of a healthy discussion about gender roles as it relates to where they were in the 1950’s in the United States, where they are now, and comparatively what they look like in Latin America.
I have created a website that serves as the home base for all the sites they need to go to. Check it out here: https://goo.gl/47EKmf
The different articles included are:
GENDER ROLES IN 1950'S AMERICA
THE STATE OF WOMEN IN AMERICA
GENDER ROLES IN HISPANIC CULTURE
WHAT GENDER INEQUALITY LOOKS LIKE IN LATIN AMERICA
WORKING MOMS STILL TAKE ON BULK OF HOUSEHOLD CHORES
LATIN AMERICA: GENDER STEREOTYPES STILL FIRMLY ENTRENCHED, DESPITE PROGRESS
CHORE WAR: HOUSEHOLD TASKS AND THE TWO-PAYCHECK COUPLE
IMPORTANCE OF FAMILY STRUCTURE IN HISPANIC FAMILIES
This is a 4 page document with 52 questions including a reflection section.
Answer key is included.
I have also included a PPT of discussion questions for the following day. This includes 21 slides to guide a discussion about the items researched in the WebQuest.
I created this WebQuest and discussion guide to add more depth to a unit on the house and household chores. I teach Spanish but the entire WebQuest is in English so this could be used for other subject areas as well.
